Contents Notes
'This is the definitive text in a market consisting of senior and graduate environmental engineering students who are taking a chemistry course. The text is divided into a chemistry fundamentals section and an applications section. In this new edition, the authors have retained the thorough, yet concise, coverage of basic chemical principles from general, physical, equilibrium, organic, biochemistry, colloid, and nuclear chemistry. In addition, the authors have retained their classic two-fold approach of (1) focusing on the aspects of chemistry that are particularly valuable for solving environmental problems, and (2) laying the groundwork for understanding water and wastewater analysis-a fundamental basis of environmental engineering practice and research.' from publisher's description. PART ONE: Fundamentals of chemistry and environmental engineering and science -- Introduction -- Basic concepts from general chemistry -- Basic concepts from physical chemistry -- Basic concepts from equilibrium chemistry -- Basic concepts from organic chemistry -- Basic concepts from biochemistry -- Basic concepts from colloid chemistry -- Basic concepts from nuclear chemistry. PART TWO: Water and wastewater analysis -- Introduction -- Statistical analysis of analytical data -- Basic concepts from quantitative chemistry -- Instrumental methods of analysis -- Turbidity -- Color -- Standard solutions -- phD -- Acidity -- Alkalinity -- Hardness -- Residual chlorine and chlorine demand -- Chloride -- Dissolved oxygen -- Biochemical oxygen demand -- Chemical oxygen demand -- Nitrogen -- Solids -- Iron and manganese -- Fluoride -- Sulfate -- Phosphorus and phosphate -- Oil and grease -- Volatile acids -- Gas analysis -- Trace contaminants.
